Nexus 5548 L3 daughter card flapping

Hi guys,

Anyone of you here that experienced the logs below on their Nexus box:

2011 Dec 12 06:24:45 GDCNXS5K01 %BTCM-2-BTCM_LOG_ROUTER_ERR: router card in slot 3 has internal link(s) flapped:     router ports down: 0x1a108000 0x1a109000 0x1a10a000 0x1a10b000 0x1a10c000 0x1a10d000 0x1a10e000 0x1a10f000

I am getting this log at least once a day. Seems like it is shutting down the SVI of the box after the said log occured. Good thing I have enable vPC and I am able to access the NXS5K through the vCP keepalive link (mgmt).

I have two Nexus 5548, but only one is experiencing the said error.

Any inputs, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Nexus 5548 L3 daughter card flapping

We had this same problem this past weekend, only in module 2 on a 5596.

In our case, we had rebooted our primary Nexus and found the following message immediately preceeded the BTCM error you noted:

%$ VDC-1 %$ %NOHMS-2-NOHMS_DIAG_ERROR: Module 2: Bootup diag detected major event: Forwarding ASIC failure: Ethernet2/9 Ethernet2/10 Ethernet2/11 Ethernet2/12 Ethernet2/13 Ethernet2/14 Ethernet2/15 Ethernet2/16

We replaced the module.  A "show diag results module 3" would probably show you the same thing.  However, I don't think the error message will show up until you reboot.

If your flapping Nexus is secondary, you probably won't notice anything major, but if it is your primary, it would probably affect your routing.
